Abstract:


In this paper we present the virtual learning environment"Research Exhibition and
Experience Landscape - REEL", which is a platform for communicating scientific projects. REEL
allows users to observe and participate in scientific research. We created hands-on experiences in
the Virtual World of Second Life, which allow the student to directly step in the field of research
and learn in a playful way. REEL showcases the results of the e-Tourism project"Itchy Feet",
which provides a 3D e-Tourism environment for providers and consumers that enables versatile
interaction between participants including trading of tourism products. REEL explains complex
matters in a graspable and understandable way.
